History and Mission


The mission of The Department of Urology at Weill Cornell Medicine is to provide our patients with effective and emerging new therapies in urologic care in a compassionate environment. Through translational research we determine new approaches for prevention and treatment, while cultivating the next generation of leaders in urological health and science.


The urologists at Weill Cornell Medicine work together. The Department originally existed as one unit at Bellevue Hospital, with the second unit at The New York Hospital.

The New York Hospital was supported by a substantial grant from James Buchanan "Diamond Jim" Brady, allowing research and other educational programs to thrive since its inception. The second unit at Bellevue Hospital was eventually disbanded, merging uniform service for all patients under one roof – now as part of Weill Cornell Medicine, Brady Urology Associates has a primary site on the 9th floor at 525 East 68th Street with urologic experts at multiple sites throughout the New York region.
